Advent day 2

Advent Day 2
This is one of the My favorite Christmas decorations, a couple of years ago
my mom was downsizing her Christmas stash. 
The stash included items she had collected, made and saved the 50 plus
holidays my parents have been married.  I have been wanting to downsize my collection of
38 years so I only chose a few items, mostly old Christmas bulbs 
from the holiday trees during my childhood.
These bulbs have so many memories ( even the spray on snow still intact 40+ years) 
I wanted to protect them, so I chose a tin lantern.
I am sure you have your cherished Christmas items also.
Happy Stamping!  Cindy

Advent day 1

Hello Ladies,
This year I plan to share my holiday season with you
using this fun advent calendar.
Day One-
I watched the Christmas movie Snow Bride on the Hallmark channel.
Emily and I watch every new Christmas movie and even the old ones.
I had to add some Stampin' Up! embellishment opportunities to make it mine.
The holiday cheer card was made using the under the tree tag and bag accessory kit
 from the holiday catalog. 
Check back tomorrow to see what I add for day 2.
Happy Stamping, Cindy

Wedding project - Tinting mason jars with Stampin' Up! reinkers

 Wedding project - Tinting mason jars with Stampin' Up! reinkers

   Hello Ladies,

      For Emily's wedding we wanted the Quilted Mason jars to have a Tiffany Blue tint.  After trying several different methods we chose this one-
Modge Podge (gloss finish)
Stampin' Up! reinker- Coastal Cabana
I used a disposable solo cup to mix about 1 cup of Gloss Modge Podge  with just enough water ( a couple of teaspoons) to thin it out, added a few(6 or 7) drops of Stampin' Up! Coastal Cabana reinker and mixed well with a wooden stick.  I poured enough of the above mixture into one jar at a time to cover the bottom jar.  You then will tilt the jar at a angle and roll the jar in your hands letting the mixture coat the entire inside of your jar. When all sides are well covered pour as much as the leftover mixture into your next jar and repeat the same technique with each jar.  Put the jars into your oven at 200 degrees for about 1 hour or when they are clear.  You are not limited to blue jars Stampin' Up! has 48 different colors to choose from.  Please note- You cannot add water to these jars even after they are dry- water will dissolve the modge podge.
Thanks for looking, Cindy
